Ah, the Chevrolet C2 Corvette. Some – including yours truly – might argue that it’s the handsomest of all the Corvette generations, but even if you fancy the C3, or even the C1, there can be no denying that the C2 is a gem of a classic American sportscar.
Now, if you take that gem and make it a three-pedaled beauty with a pair of turbochargers, then you’ve really got something special.
Behold the superb C2 in the video above, which has the aforementioned standard trans and twin snails, and can blitz through the quarter-mile in the low-nine-second range. Some might say there are better, more noble uses for the C2 Corvette; that fitting it with a couple of turbos and blasting down the dragstrip is an egregious misuse of an American classic.
Here, we say to each his own.
